Clydesdale Harriers compete in Dundee Half Marathon

Fastest Clydesdale Harrier runner in the Dundee Half Marathon was Hugh Laverty in 1hr 32mins 55secs, followed by Stuart Allison (1.34.44), Marina McCallum (1.36.09), and Christine Duncanson (1.49.08).

The race took place on July 21 and started at Camperdown Park. It finished at Broughty Ferry on a mixed terrain course.

Also that day in Grangemouth was the Scottish Athletics League(SAL) Division 2 track meeting. Anton Russell had a very busy day competing in no less than five events. First off was the 100m. He ran well to finish in 12.27secs. Next the 200m (24.73), Long Jump (5.79m and third position), High Jump (1.70m), and Shot Putt (8.43m).

D. Dolan also ran the 100m, finishing in 13.08. He then did the Long Jump (4.11m).

Andrew Cusick jumped in the Triple Jump (12.06m), and Ryan Nelson tackled the longer distances starting with the 800m (2.26.64), and the 1500m (5.16.43).

The 4x100m was next and had Anton Russell running first, changing to Ryan Nelson, changing to Dolan, finally changing to Andrew Cusick to finish fifth overall.

On Sunday (August 4) is the Central and South of Scotland League (CSSL) where harriers young and old will be competing in track and field events at Kilmarnock. Good luck to everybody as a good result could mean promotion to Division 1.

The following weekend some of the senior harriers will be travelling north to run in the Mull Half Marathon and 10k. Some good results should be achieved there as well.
